As noted this week, CM Punk’s lawyers recently sent a 22 page document directly to WWE headquarters. The letter is in regards to WWE’s ability to use his likeness which extends to the line of video games. The problem here is that Punk is no longer under contract yet he is featured in WWE 2K15 which is slated to be released on October 28th.
The feeling is that if the game were to be released, WWE and 2K would be looking at a much more serious situation than simply giving Punk royalties. It is also tough to simply remove Punk from the game because he will be playing a large role in 2K Showcase, which is essentially the story mode of the game.
Gameranx.com reports that this could cause the game to be delayed.
We will keep you updated on the situation as more details come out.
